Hey Guys and Girls!

I own this device since quite a short time and i wanted to ask if any developer is willing to port the 3.4.x kernel to our S3 i9300, since it would bring us some big performance, stability and security enhancements since we are stuck at 3.0.101. We would really profit of this as its much more actual and better for coming upgrades. Please correct me if there are already some devs trying to port this or if anything else is wrong.
My previous device was/is the Samsung Galaxy S Plus and we got a 3.4.x kernel that runs very well and gave us some big improvements. We officially only got Android 2.3.6 with a 2.6.x kernel and our great devs managed to found a dev team and to bring us a fully working 3.0.x and 3.4.x kernel and Android 4.0 to latest 4.4.
I could provide some github repositories and some more additional info if needed, just PM me if you want to start on this. I can't code or compile that much but i could provide nearly everything you need in my opinion.

Greets,
markey97

Edit: I can try to port this on my own but i think that i most likely need YOUR help. Just to have that said
Edit2: I mean the international S3 i9300
Edit3: Changed title
Edit4: Base for the kernel is there! Developement will start slowly in the following days/weeks and source will be pushed to github in some time.
Edit5: I will port this on my own, if anyone wants/ is willing to help me, PM me. I will show you my detailed progress here and will maybe give an ETA, but if i don't, don't ask for it since i also have private live, and i will code and provide you with info when I'm free and when i want to.

Feel free to post feature requests/suggestions over here in the thread!!

are you talking about the S3 LTE phone? the one that has an exynos4 cpu? I'm definitely interested in this! I've been looking and trying to port over a 3.4.x+ kernel since the 3.0.101 is at EOL.

Thats exactly the way i think about it, we need a more actual kernel on our devices, not just a newer Android version to stay on the safe side, but i a also have to disappoint you, because i meant the i9300. But we could definitely together try to port it also to the i9305 which you meant, right?

yeah, sorry, in actually running the t0ltevzw (Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2). same processor, just clocked a tad higher. i looked at the sgs+ and saw it's running a Qualcomm cpu, so it may be harder to implement what the devs of the sgs+ put into affect, but I'm ready to learn and hack my way around.

Could anyone be so kind to enlighten me why this thread about "i9300" appeares in every note 2 forum on xda? each time i want to jump straight to i9300 it gets me first through all the note 2 forums. this is kind of silly.

am i the only one getting to see this thread in the note 2 forums?

You mean if this thread is dead or the project abandoned?
No its not, i just don't have enough time to work on this till Christmas (school..arggh) but then i will try to port it in a time span of 2 weeks or so. Lol.
I'm searching for the source base and what I need to port it and then I will start when my holidays start. Yeeeah!
